Their products speak for themselves and are unique, great customer service and they give off a good vibe that you want to be a part of.

If you haven't dealt with Ocean Rodeo before you should...you'll see how the comparison fits.

Love my iPhone !! Love my iMako!! They just need to come out with a shorter version of the Mako wide...the 135cm range would be money...They can call it the Mako Shuffle :D

I ride a Mako, have a Macbook, and an iPhone as well. It's the one true faith as far as I'm concerned! :-D

Let me throw this one out for a laugh..... :wink:

How do you Apple....Mac....iphone fans feel about flying LEIs that are basicly the kiteworlds PCs.

All basicly a bunch of clones... pretty cheap... nasty graphics (most of the time)..... a new brand (clone) every three weeks or so...... the crowd flys them...... just like PCs .....bladder leaks (sort of like viruses) :wink:

That's true, all the makos I tried have normal low end, even if they are big. If ocean rodeo would make a light wind mako, it may not be a mako anymore. The things we like may be lost in the process.

Mako is the "Apple-like" board as Flysurfer foil kites are the "Apple-like" kites. Perfect combo !

Cheers to all Mako fans,

Alex

There used to be a Mako pro - 134cm long and now its gone. Not enough interest I guess....

What a funny post, and a good way of describing the mako I suppose. The mako's are indeed unlike no other board. They have to be ridden to be believed!

Go and test one and you will see!

This is precisely what Mako is all about - it is unique... UNLIKE Apple's products.

There is very little uniqueness in iPod or iPhone - other brands do same products better and cheaper. And UNLIKE Apple users who prefer brand over anything else, you don't need to be a big fan of Ocean Rodeo to choose Mako.

Sorry, but I am not a fan of Apple, and the comparison seems somewhat dumb to me...
